EXCLUSIVE: Turk Speaks On New Partnership With J. Prince’ Rap-A-Lot Records (PICS)

(AllHipHop News) New Orleans rapper Turk announced he is partnering with J. Prince’s legendary Rap-A-Lot Records. The CEO of YNT EMPIRE Inc. signed an executive partnership deal with the Houston-based label.

“J. Prince saw the movement I’ve created with my company YNT EMPIRE Inc. He was impressed with everything I was doing solo and wanted to be a part of making it larger than life,” Turks tells AllHipHop.com. “I won’t speak numbers, but let’s just say, I was made an offer you would be a fool to refuse. With his background and expertise in the industry and my new-found enthusiasm and talented young roster expect to see major things from Rap-A-Lot/YNT in 2014!”

Rap-A-Lot has released projects from Hip Hop acts like Scarface, Geto Boys, Bun B, Pimp C, Juvenile, Do or Die, Yukmouth, Devin The Dude, and Z-Ro. The label signed a distribution deal with Sony RED in August.

Turk’s YNT Empire will be joining Rap-A-Lot’s current roster of Bun B and Z-Ro. Turk was previously signed to Cash Money Records. He recently had a falling out with members of his former label over what Turk felt was a lack of support from Juvenile, Lil Wayne, Birdman and Mannie Fresh after the death of his father.

After being released from prison in October of 2012, Turk released the mixtapes Blame It On The System and Louisianimalz earlier this year.

    WOW! Poor dude! Gonna from ONE BAD Situation to ANOTHER! These CEOs got a HORRIBLE reoutation for not paying royalties & strong arming their way through one-sided contracts & ‘negotiations’! He did ALL that time for this?

    This just goes to show, all those old artists from Cash Money Records, never knew how to handle business outside of the booth. Executives need artists just as much as the artists need them. It’s all about everybody playing their position.

    Turk needs a job. Maybe an A&R position or a stand in the mall. He was the worst one out of the Hot Boys and didn’t drop an album until Juvi and B.G. Left the label. All those yrs in the pen and he still sucks. Good luck tho.

    All of (old school) Cash Money had memorable voices and flows Lil Wayne, Juvenile, BG even Baby and Mannie but Turk… He doesn’t, I own one of his albums he dropped back in the day I swear I can’t remember what his voice sounds like… I do remember liking the album somewhat but for real his voice is really unmemorable…
